Children as “the Future”

In Pakistan, little by little people are returning to their homes following
the mop-up campaign against the armed groups. Look at the details here.

With the help of JEN’s supporters and the Japanese government JEN is working
on a livelihood improvement program, targeting the repatriated inhabitants of
FATA (Federally Administrated Tribal Area) Khyber Agency.
This program focuses on breeding livestock.

Children, who will lead the next generation, are the main victims wherever there are conflicts and battles. The situation is the same in FATA and many kinds of support programs are being carried out. However, there is more work to do for children.

Not many children go to school. According to their parents, public schools are too far, while they cannot afford to let their children go to private schools.

The parents work hard and spend the money they earned on clothing and medical services. They save what little money left against unforeseen expenses.

We expect that the parents will spend money on their children’s education if they can earn a secure income through livestock with the help of JEN.

We often see children playing with livestock. They look happy, but their smiles should be seen not here but at schools. Support for children’s education is far from sufficient. It is smiles of more children at schools that will lead to the future.

Situations of girls’ education can be said to have worsened. It is necessary for people to deepen their understanding of the importance of education. FATA’s situations will be improved only when various efforts like this succeed.

JEN is raising contributions. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
